PREGNANCY ROUND #2 (19w PREGNANT)

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!

Over the past few weeks months I have no more interest in blogging. I've even announced the demised of my blog on twitter which is pretty sad because, this blog (like I've mentioned many posts before) is my life.

My interest in blogging have decreased many light years and I'm not proud of it. I still take responsibility for it though because the main reason this blog is in a spider web frenzy is my lack of interest of my laziness.


But then, we found out that we are pregnant, again. 

Yes.

On September, we found out that we were pregnant with our #2 baby (finally). We actually planned to have a baby this year and hoping to deliver by this year too but we were only able to plan. The gift of having a baby placed in your womb is at God's will. So, after months of trying, we're finally having a baby again.


Pregnancy was a bit bumpy this time. My morning sickness was bad, I had anemia and as if the life I've built months before, raising a husband toddler, trying to shed the baby weight (stubborn 5 kg of fats) etc. suddenly left me with a whole new meaning of being a FTWM. I became too clingy with my Belle, she became too clingy; morning is like a battle field.


I was unable to do many things, I was unable to eat, I wasn't able to walk long distance, I was throwing up 3 times a day and most of all, I can't drink a lot of water. I felt like my stomach had become so, small. 

I've also dropped some weight in my earlier weeks. My hemoglobin kept dropping and I was already messing up my appointment dates because I was in a bad condition. 

Venturing into 2nd trimester, my health was improving by 40%. Still, there was never a day that I won't feel sick. I need to constantly eat heavy meals with a minimum of 2-3 hours gap to prevent myself from hibernating. I've kept some snacks in my drawer but its not even helping me with my condition. Thank God for my mother and sister. They've helped me a lot during those terrible months.

So anyways, here's the 1st update for baby #2

How far along?
19 Weeks.

Total weight gain/measurements:
2kg. 

Maternity clothes:
Belly got big so fast this time so, I had to change into maternity uniform at almost 3 months.

Stretch marks?
Just the old ones.


Sleep:
Not the best feeling ever. Kept getting back pain and cramps. I had to tolerate my space to fit a toddler. It was hard!

Best moment this week:
Christmas? haha waking up knowing there's only 4 days of work and it's Christmas on weekend.

Miss anything?
Being normal. Being able to walk for longer distance without feeling like you're on a plane and you're having that terrible pressure in your ears.

Movement:
I forgot how it feels like but right now, it's moving. No doubt about it.

Anything making you queasy or sick?
Any types of liquids, be it as a food or a drink. That one meat noodle shop in town. Just the thought of it makes me sick!

Gender: Doctor was 90% confirmed of the gender at 16 weeks. We'll wait to see if by 6 months he's 100% right.
Labor signs: Nope.

Symptoms:
Morning sickness 60% of the time, ear pressure, cramps and super terribly lazy.

Belly button in or out? In.
Wedding rings on or off? on.

Happy or moody most of the time?
Moody. Most probably because I was still having my morning sickness.

Looking forward to:
A smooth day without any of the symptoms.

My writing is getting pretty rusty. Sorry for the terrible phrases, it's been a while.
I guess this blog is alive again but, I'm pretty sure it's not going to be like before.
Most of my blogging friends had either deactivated their blog or quit blogging all together. I felt, alone. haha.
